I really enjoyed this one, it was definitely better than some of the previous ones. I liked that Moonman was back, he always adds some humor. I'm looking forward to reading more of this series and I look forward to seeing whether Lula will have her wedding.
We decided to try out an audio book on our long road trip. My mom had never read any of the Stephanie Plum novels and was a little apprehensive about it. Turns out she loved it! We laughed quite often, and thoroughly enjoyed the story, not simply because it kept us awake, but it was a typical Stepha...
I really enjoyed the side characters more than anything. Zook, Mooner, Gary the stalker, Grandma Lula aka Scorch, Lula and Tank were all pretty damn hilarious and really made the story.
Not my fave of the bunch, but still comical.
I really love this series but this one was not one the best books...
